West Ham ends Premier League losing run with 2-0 win over Tottenham
London: West Ham United has ended a run of four successive defeats in the Premier League with an impressive 2-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday at the Upton Park, ensuring their safety among the top flight.
Sam Allardyce`s side has enjoyed their third win this season over Tottenham, which has failed to regain a top-four place in the league and are still not assured of a Europa League spot with Manchester United able to overhaul them.
According to the BBC, Spurs had Younes Kaboul sent off for a foul on Stewart Downing before the hosts took the lead when Andy Carroll`s header went in off Harry Kane, following which Downing extended the hosts` lead with a low 20-yard free-kick.
The defeat will not have boosted Tim Sherwood`s hopes of keeping his job at White Hart Lane, though the club this week denied claims they had enquired about Ajax coach Frank de Boer`s availability, the report added.
